I’ve come into the strange habit of painting only the nails on my left hand now that I don’t have lots of time to spare (I’m right handed). It’s funny how I sometimes end up doing a better job on my right hand. Anyhow, here’s the Marni florals without the stripes.

For this manicure I used the same base of Snow and dotted the flowers with Flyin’ High and High Hopes (all from China Glaze). ¬†Finally starting to get a hang of this nail pen!

Marni inspired nail art: Florals and stripes

Today’s manicure is inspired by Marni’s Spring 2012 Ready To Wear line. Marni did some pretty cool florals that I tried to replicated on my nails:

Also the main reason why I tried this design was cos I recently got my hands on a black nail pen (finally!) from one of the nail stores in town. It’s brandless and cost only S$7 (US$3), quite a steal. I’ve been dying to test it out for about a week but just couldn’t find the time. I also got some new nail colours (Snow and Papaya Punch from China Glaze) that this design was perfect for.
